      I Sure did damage that Table, suggestions?

      Do any of you remember the King of the Hill episode where Bobby and Luanne are left in charge of the house and little things keep happening in sort of a joke referencing the movies where the kids have a wild house party? Like, they damage the coffee table in some very mild way and I think an electrical socket sparks and singes the wallpaper? Of course they freak out and try to fix everything which causes likely twenty three minutes of soft laughter.

      Well, at home when I get pizza the box goes on the counter. I'm house sitting for my mother and the dining room was closer to the front door than the kitchen. So, being a lazy crap pile I put the pizza on the dining room table and did not think anything of it. Nothing, never thought that moist cardboard left on a wood table for something like twelve hours (I hate pizza after it's been in the fridge, I'll risk death before I eat pizza that's been in the fridge) would cause damage.
      Of course the second I lifted up the box and saw the damage my first thought was "of course", but that's neither here nor there.

      So, any suggestions on fixing the mistake? I'm not opposed to having it refinished however if there's some sort home remedy or whatever I'd love to hear it.

      First thing I would try is mineral oil and #0000 steel wool.

      I think you might have improved it.

      It's just moisture trapped under the finish. Get a clothes iron and a T-shirt or a thin towel. Turn the iron on to the cotton setting, put the T-shirt over the spot, and iron it.

      That actually makes sense. I remember things like this in the past eventually "going away" over time.
      Can't get much worse, might as well try it.

      Thanks!

      get another pizza and do the same thing, only insulate select areas so that the resulting "stain" will look like Jesus on the cross.

      This. Happened with an order of chili cheese fries from the Hat on our coffee table last week. Wife flexed her google-fu and found above mentioned solution. Worked like a charm.

      If it's new, do the iron trick. Magic.

      If it's had time to sit and there's no longer moisture trapped under the finish but damage or loss to the finish- I've had success with a little olive oil mixed with salt so its a paste that you rub on the spot and then wipe up. *Almost like new*

      Before using an iron try a hair dryer, should do about the same thing but less chance of burning your wood.

      Edit: Maybe I should read posts from top to bottom and not the other way.

      Now had it been a JEGS catalog, they would have just thrown that table out on the burn pile.

      My Grandmother's recipe for this was: half olive oil and half vinegar. Wipe gently going with the grain. Be patient, can sometimes take a couple of runs at it before it's gone!

      That was her cure for your hard wood?
